My Husband Explains Makeup

I thought this would be fun, but it turned out to be funnier than I had expected. I selected a few makeup items at random and asked my husband to explain what they were. Angelaย shared a similar post recently and ever since I’ve been wanting to give it a try.

Now, before I go into the details, let me share some things about him. I don’t know how he manages it, but he seems to be perpetually high on life. He’s got a sharp sense of humor and ends up saying something funny even in the weirdest of situations. Much to my dismay, he calls himself “the fun in funeral”.ย Naturally, some of the thoughts he poured out in this exercise were pure gold! Here it goes:

Eyelash curler


[He]: (Gets all excited) Oh, I know this one! It’s for curling your eyebrows.

Um, you mean eyelashes? ๐Ÿ˜‰

[He]: Right! That’s what I meant (grins sheepishly) ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€



[He]: You apply this on your face.

Whaaa?ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[He]: (Gets all jittery) Damn, I can’t remember the name! (Thinks hard) I’ve got it! It’s foundation. It’s what you use as the base, like how you lay the foundation of a building.

Hmm…technically correct, only that’s not foundation ๐Ÿ˜€

I can see that he’s totally enjoying himself now ๐Ÿ˜‰

[He]:ย  Okay, what’s next? (As I search for the next item) You know, I can’t help but wonder exactly how much of this stuff you have? Do you even use all of them?

Experience has taught me that it’s best to steer clear of such seemingly-innocent questions. So I flash a lame smile at him and quickly move on to the next item ๐Ÿ˜



[He]: (Reads something off the label) It’s makeup art

Um..whaaaat? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[He]: I think you line your eyes with it.

Wow! I can’t believe he got that one right ๐Ÿ˜€

[He]: (Smiles with a smug expression) You know, I think it’s one of those things that has stayed in my subconscious when I’ve seen you do your makeup.

I guess it’s best to move on before it gets to his head and messes up the wiring some more ๐Ÿ˜‰



[He]: (Scratches head) Sh*t, I named the other one foundation! (Thinks for a while) The color resembles that of a concealer. I’ll go with concealer cos foundation comes in multiple colors.

Well, honey, concealers come in multiple shades too. But that’s okay. Honestly, I’m impressed that you know what a concealer is.

And then he drops this gem!

[He]: Like how asphalt is used to cover up potholes on the road, concealer is used for covering up boils or pimples on your face.

My jaw drops…



[He]: (Reads off the label) Volume million lashes…extra black… Oh! This is for coloring your eyelashes. Eyelash liner? (grins sheepishly) ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

No dear, but that’s enough for the day ๐Ÿ™‚

Before wrapping up, I wanted to know some of his final thoughts on this exercise. This is what he had to say:

#1: I think I have failed miserably.

#2: Dude, you spend way too much on makeup!

#3: Please make me look good on your post ๐Ÿ˜€

How do you think he did? If you enjoyed reading this, please share it so others can laugh too ๐Ÿ™‚
